Inscription.  In 1840, Mt. Zion Church on the Randolph Circuit was organized by Rev. Isaac Sullivan. In 1866 it was moved to town and renamed. The present building was built in 1911. This was the only church in the community for 71 years. With the support of this church, the Dyersburg District Training School was developed in 1887 by the M. E. Church, South, under the direction of Rev. W. H. Adams. It served this area until 1924 when it was sold to Tipton County for their public school system. With God's help, these pioneer Methodists faithfully accepted responsibility for religion, education and community development.
 
Erected 1990 by Memphis Conference Commission on Archives and History.
